What To Expect
London's East End was seen as a world apart and in 1888 the sort of place where one might not survive long. However, there is only one person that can claim the title of Whitechapel Murderer - Jack the Ripper!
We will explore the historical background of the Whitechapel murders and their passing into a genre almost in their own right. We will examine how public perception of these murders has been shaped by Jack's portayal on TV and Film and compare that to the reality of 1888.
On our Jack The Ripper tour step back and imagine gas-lit alleys, hear the voices of the "Children of the ghetto" crushers, coves, slummers and unfortunates.
The Whitechapel murders have assumed mythic status, they are gruesome but gripping. Our tour will fascinate anyone fascinated by this unsolved myster and who wanted to learn more about tales of the "People from the Abyss."
Above all we shall remember the tragic lives of those women who had friends and loved ones, who struggled daily to survive and were not born merely to be ciphers in a serial killers story.
Your guide will meet you and escort you back to Aldgate East station.
